Does anyone here wear Squadra for their team kit?
I'd like to get some feedback on:

1. Quality of construction over the course of a season
2. Chamois pads - reports? Issues?
3. Delivery quotes vs. times?
4. Any other comments that may be useful.

Thanks!

Prend,

Our local racing club uses it: http://www.velobrew.com/

I wore the jersey once. I like having nipples.

I have polled many active riders in the club. No fans yet. YMMV.

We did and it sucked.

Chamois was universally hated by all 26 riders.

The jerseys have the pockets oddly high on the back so if you have normal to long arms you need to be a yoga master to get shit out of the pockets.

The jerseys were cut very short, with longer sleeves that we all cut about an inch or more off of.

Wasn't impressed for the price. As with all custom kit makers delivery was severely delayed. Vie13 was better as was Pactimo.

Yeah, a few PMs also back up what the two of you have verified: not good.

I've also been looking into Pactimo, I'll look up Vie13. Thanks!
